    A message from Sharon Pardue:

    Whistler is a town north of Vancouver, British Columbia, that's home to Whistler Blackcomb, one of the largest ski resorts in North America.  Besides skiing and snowboarding, the area offers snowshoeing, tobogganing and ski jumping at the Olympic Park, a venue for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics.  The hub of Whistler is a compact, chalet-style pedestrian village at the base of Whistler and Blackcomb mountains.  W
    histler is a true winter wonderland and was ranked as the # 1 North America Ski Resort for off-hill activities by Ski Magazine in 2015. 

    Think of Whistler Village as your home away from home, with added mountains.  A stroll along the stone walkways will reveal all the creature comforts you need (plus a few luxuries you really want).  And when it's time to escape, the great outdoors is just steps away.  From casual après-ski snacks to fine dining, Whistler's award-winning restaurants offer diverse dining options with many featuring organic, locally sourced ingredients.  Satisfy your cravings with a multitude of places to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner with price ranges to suit every budget.

    You will experience an unparalleled perspective of British Columbia while riding the longest and highest lift in the world.  The world record breaking PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola was built for sightseers, skiers and snowboarders alike and joins Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains meaning you do not have to choose which mountain to spend your day on.  Whistler has it all: 200 marked runs, 8,171 acres of terrain, 16 alpine bowls, and 3 glaciers.  Whistler Mountain has 20% “greens”, 55% “blues”, and 25% “blacks” and Blackcomb Mountain has 15% “greens”, 55% “blues”, and 30% “blacks.

    Conveniently located in the heart of Whistler Village, the Delta Whistler Village Suites is the perfect full service getaway.  The Delta Whistler Village Suites’ offers beautifully appointed one and two bedroom suites, fully equipped kitchens, in-suite washer/dryer, balconies, fireplaces, 1 heated outdoor pool and 3 hot tubs, saunas, and fitness center.

    We’re planning some great social activities with this trip, with a wine and cheese reception when we arrive, a couple of apres ski socials, and a group dinner that you won’t want to miss. I hope you’ll join me at for this wonderful trip to Whistler BC.

    Sharon
